IF NOT PEACE…

All night I prayed for peace
until the amber dawn
shown on my face
Lord, if it is not to be,
then I pray…
send us swift victory!

The ethereal mists of morn
float among the barren trees
The cardinals red flashes
Are seen among these
Lord, still I pray,
If not peace… victory!

Even though full in the sun
fears of the night have not run
What will be brought this day
No one but the almighty can say
Lord, Lord, still I beg of thee,
send us peace… or swift victory!
